Research

Areas of Research Interest:

  • Informetrics
  • Information retrieval
  • Internet research
  • Information behavior

Informetrics

This subfield of information science deals with quantitative aspects of information. More specifically I carry out studies related to scholarly information (publications, citations, peer-reviewing etc.), and also in altmetrics, searching for alternative ways to assess impact and visibility of scholarly communication.

Information retrieval

I mainly concentrate on evaluating the outcomes of retrieval, including user satisfaction with ranked search results. We have conducted a number of studies where users were asked to rerank search results or were asked about different sets of ranked results.
